Bungala – Australia’s largest solar project – connected for purpose and profit

December 3, 2018

Australia’s largest solar plant developed and delivered by SVP member Enel Green Power (EGP), Bungala Solar is located in South Australia’s Port Augusta, an area up until recently known for its coal power plants which ceased operation in 2016.

The ‘green desert’ of arid and flat territory is an ideal location for Bungala’s clean and renewable energy.

Designed to generate the equivalent consumption needs of approx. 82,000 Australian households, avoiding the emission of about 520,000 tonnes of CO2, through Bungala, EGP is delivering the benefits of sustainable development and clean energy to the local community and beyond.

In collaboration with the South Australian government, EGP have launched a professional training project for the aboriginal community of Port Augusta to help construct the Bungala Solar project

Enel Green Power is enabling local cluster development, a key pillar of shared value, by upskilling local people and improving their future job prospects.

We look forward to supporting Enel Green Power’s shared value journey in Australia which will no doubt encourage the growth of renewables and enable a significant reduction of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions.
